Lindbergh and of their happiness in their little s6n. "That baby's face is just like his nother's, and he's got her real' blue eyes, too," said the cowboy philosopher, close friend of the Lindberghs. "He was the, happiest little feller, jabbering and'burbling away. He was talk- Ing all the time and saying the usual things that a baby of that age does- mamma 'and daddy and that sort of thing.

But this little report from New. York is one of the encouraging straws that recent months have provided. Art and Hard Tiroes J tjmea or no, the cause of art seems to be a flourish-one.

Nitroglycerine Found by Fort Smith Police FORT SMITH, Ark.—(£>)-Curious policemen, examining two bottles,of an unknown liquid found in the possession of three suspects, caused the suspects some tense moments.

Cc*ftmUteVi tit A contest ever the revised protocol for American adherence, to the World Court' f&uUisd Weanesd&y in a draw. Friends of the coflrt defeated a motion to defer a report to the Senate until April IS, but its foes replied by stalling off action, Wednesday and postponed the IsMie a\«iek. Both factions joined in aiding an "interpretative re9olutioh":or reservation affirming America's fciiputed, stand against advisory Oplnidfa by the court relating to this country. The unairtiously t appro^ed resolution, offered: by Senator Reed, Republican, Pennsylvania, immediately brought conflicting views on its effect and the whole status of .tjie'court issue was involved Wednesday nfght in considerable confusion. A similarly worded Senate reservation adopted In approving adherence to the court six weeks ago drew such.fire from other nations that.formal American entry was prevented. . : Senator Reed said the language written into the preamble of the Senate resolution of ratification Wednesday >y the committee was merely, inter-' >retative of the American stand and does not require approval of the other nations. Chairman 'Borah of the committee, a foe of the coUrt, contended that it amounted to a reservation and demanded formal approval of the other adherents to the court before Amer- can. participation could become an accomplished fact. After other powers refused to accept he Senate's reservation against advisory opinions, rules of the court were revised under a commission leaded by Elihu Root. Mr. Root con- ended the new rcles accomplished what was sought by the Senate's old reservation. President Hoover approved the revised protocol and submitted, it \o the Senate. The Reed resolution stiplates: "Said protocol is ratified with the clear understanding that the Permanent Court 1 of International Justice shall not without the consent of the United States entertain any request for an advisory opinion touching any dispute or qces- ion in which the United Statse has. or claims ah interest." market In the re] kets And Potiffryt •Hem, large, iwihd.:,.._ H«ns, medium, pound Hens, small, pound 1 ., Spring*, Eggs-dozen Bu|J$at iffd Cjf^ap, jtocnd.

An appreciative, audience in Hope High School auditorium watched the three-act comedy "Just Call it Love" presented Wednesday night by Die Harlequin Little Theatre from Arkansas College, Batesvllle. The troupe is on a state, tour under the direction of Mrs. Cornelius Ball, head of the department of Speech, and her dra- ipntic assistant, Miss Virginia Fitzhugh. The Hope appearance was sponsored by the P. T. A.'s of the city. Player by player the individual work was brilliant. Miss Doris Magness, who carried much of the burden of each of the acts,-achieved the almost impossible by quarrelling with her, husband without losing any of her charming dignity. Chester Craw- 1'ord, as the handsome and altogether human husband, and Hugh Murphy as the butler, were outstanding for consistence and verity r of character, and Miss Rosa Wllwee/showed a remarkably clear conception of the personality of "Dolly Qarrett," the obliging but tactless lady who upheld the negative in the contest of "sex appeal vs. encyclopedia." The final bit of melodrama which closed the third act was convincingly enacted by the five players who were on the stage. The play as a whole was not an individual triumph unless that individual ~be the director. The stage mechanisms were well, controlled: Excellent stage pictures, beautifully balanced diction, cites,' reactions:and coordination of actors, etc. And the fusing of the mechanisms into a delightfully ..pleasant unity.—, gave the characteristic touch of directive are.

WOW GO ON WITH THE STORY CHAPTER XXVI »T»HE morning at the store hac been a happy one for Ellen Tbe pleasantness ot the evening before lingered through the opening hours of the day. Noon came. Ellen and Lorene yawned, looked at each other interrogatively and began tidying up for lunch, Lorene tentatively suggested a newly' discovered tea room with a hangup 7 5-cent luncheon, They set off and talked shop through the lazy, unhurried hour. Ellen found it pleasant to lunch in such a comfortable fash Ion. Afterwards when they were stroking back to the store, Lorene said suddenly; "I've decided to let you try Biumstef&'s yourself this after noon, I hear they have some cute sports dresses at ?9.10—a new line, Carver & Co. has a whole window display from there." "Ob!" said Ellen, flushed and three or four. Green Is a bet, I think. And sptlilng |po fancy, use your own judgment.

Underneath lay the pleased consciousness that she was through with Barclay's for the day. Myra should he home from the library. Tea and muffins in the kitchen, perhaps. Ellen's steps hastened. She entered the dusky hallway and had started up the stairs when Myra, wearing an old faded apron and bedroom slippers, her head wrapped in a towel, came flying down. Ellen saw disaster in her sister's eyes. "Ellen! Mike's been hurt. An accident—!"- t .^ "Mike!" '<'*)'" Ellen leaned against the ban* nlster. Her heart seemed to stop. Her brain — everything—seemed to stop for a terrible, timeless mo* ment. "He's unconscious, They car- rled him In our bedroom." Myra was gone. Ellen ran up tbe stairs and into the shabby familiar living room filled with silent people, women in dust caps and aprons, a few coatless perspiring men. Mike's bicycle was propped against the wall. They were all looking at it. "It's the other sister," Ellen heard someone say, "Poor thing! Let her through." TIERING, moving uneasily, they made a path for her, all the curious, kindly neighbors, but Ellen did not notice, Sna ran past them to tbe bedroom, Mike lay unconscious on the beo,, Mrs. Clancy, concerned and anxious, was leaning over him. Molly sat still and white in a chair drawn close. She did not move as Ellen entered. "Oh, Ellen, it's you! J thought Mrs. Clancy turned and spoke quietly. Ellen's breath came in great gasps. She could not speak. "Sit down."

','He—•He's breathing, Ellen. J have to hope and pray." Their fingers closed together tightly; their terrified eyes met and failed ot reassurance. 'Molly sat motionless, tearless, speechless. Myra tried to make her leave but she would not. Ellen knelt beside the bed, not daring to touch Mike except to take one ot his stubby nailed hands, still grimy from play. She hardly knew what went on about her. She was not aware.that Myra bad at last succeeded in getting Molly into her own bedroom. She was aware only of Mike and bis death-like pallor and bis death-like stillness. Dr. Ellis came. Another doctor came. Ellen hardly understood that they bad forced her from tbe room B» they could make the examination. After a long While—it was dark outside now—the doctors reluctantly announced they still could not say how gnavely the boy was injured. Internal injuries undoubtedly—the persistent coma due to that—one leg broken, perhaps his spine affected. Tbe child should be in a hospital. They wanted .another opinion before moving him. "How soon will we know the best —or the worst?" It was the ghost of Molly's voice. "We-11," Dr, Ellis hesitated, "if be holds out through the night we should be able to move him by morning. An immediate operation would be too dangerous." returned to her vigil be. Mike. Myra moved in and out, but most of tbe time she stayed in tbe n.ejnt roonj with Molly who Jay sleepless, staring, tearless. Sometimes Mike's breathing grew beavy and the strange, stertorous sound filled tbe watcher with panic. Yet never would Ellen allow her bopes, fp flag. Toward worning Mike stirred for tbe first time an4 murmured something incoherent about a bicycle. Ellen looked quickly toward Dr. Ellis at tbe otber side of the bed. "That's good," be said. Presently the doctor gave a deep sigh, "Vou, can tell your mother an4 Myr$ we'll be moving tbe youag man to tbe hospital in an hour or B.O."

Again and again Myra pr Ellen Would Importune a crisp, starched nurse for news that did not come. They started at every ring of the telephone and then sank back looking at each other with bleak eyes and faltering hearts. Tbe great hospital, seemed to have swallowed up little Mike as though he had never existed. At 11 o'clock Ellen, haggard and heavy-eyed, remembered that she had not notified Lorene of her absence from the store. She whispered to Myra and slipped to the telephone, haunted by a vision ot Molly's face. If anything happened to Mike she was afraid that Molly ... Lorene answered the call and Ellen tore her thoughts from the unthinkable future, She explained what bad happened and was back oh the bench again. Hours had never been so long or so empty. It was 12 o'clock. Then 1, 2, and nearly 3. Still no word. Dr. Ellis appeared but he could tell them nothing.

She struggled to her feet, tears raining down her face, the first tears PUe bad shed since tbe accident. Her cold, desperate fingers tuggad at the doctor's sleeve. "Where is he? Let me go to him —at once." "I'm afraid you can't now," Dr. Ellis said gravely. The nurse, standing at bis elbow, intervened. "That will be impossible. The little boy is yery tired now and sick. He's in a ward with A number of otber children who also cannot be disturbed. Our visit* ing hours are on Tuesday and Thursday at 3 o'clock. In view of the circumstances if you come early tomorrow we might make in exception." Ellen's eyes appealed to Dr. Ellis. "But won't Mike need a room by himself, special nurses and all tuose .things?" sbe asked.
